Ordered a Pixel XL on black friday, Shipping date was 1/6/17 but I figured I could wait. Now at 7:12 PM on the day the phone is supposed to have shipped I get an email saying it's been delayed to March 10th.

So much for my experiment with google, and bye bye Verizon. Anyone want to buy a Daydream? They didn't have a problem shipping that out in 2 days.

I might cancel my order and buy one that claims to be slightly used and mint on eBay. Anyone have experience ordering phones from eBay recently? I haven't used that site in a decade

How much is that one?

Google had them in stock recently...

Phones on eBay is hit or miss. The best deals are from new-ish sellers with not much of a track record, so that's a roll of the dice. Sometimes it works and sometimes its the wrong memory or worse condition. The safer buys are from the larger sellers, but you pay more. Check out http://auctionsniper.com/

my last 4 phone purchases were from ebay. I'd beware of NIB phones coming from asia, as many are B stock/gray market that don't meet USDM QA. One of the LG G3's I bought for an ex turned out to be B stock and would randomly overheat. the 2 refurb G3s have been perfect and my blackberry passport was perfect as well

Looks like I got a good seller, no visible nicks or scratches anywhere on the phone.

I'm enjoying it so far, daydream is pretty sweet. Gonna go to Verizon tomorrow and switch my plan to prepaid, looks like that's gonna end up being much cheaper overall, might even end up better off than my black friday deal over the long term.

Is anyone using any non-OEM chargers for their Pixel?

No, I am too scared from all of the crazy reviews and stories I see online

What video players do you all use?

Had some stuttering with some MKV files...MX Player worked best for me but was barely watchable.

MX Player has always been the most reliable for me, on multiple devices. Did you try messing with the HW+ Decoder settings?

Yeah when I click that it says "not supported"...So I guess my pixel doesn't do that?

Perhaps. Have you tried other MKVs to see if they will play? If not the hardware might not support it. But a 700MB .AVI is gonna look just fine on a <= 10" screen.

picked up a ZTE axon 7. specs are identical to the pixel but has an unlocked bootloader and much better rom support. the device is only $330 on amazon right now. I've been pretty impressed so far after getting a rom on and customized. Seems about the best phone out there if you want to have control of your battery/apps/OS on modern hardware. I couldn't wait for zenfone AR anymore after my g3 broke
